This was just free idea. Right now Mylyn have feature to group task by some
attributes and this is something like hierarchy.
I think that users are confused with drag and drop plus folders.
Ok, I understand, and I'm just looking for solution for my huge mylyn list.
Usually I have about 20 active projects. For each there is 2 queries for
milestone, some projects have one milestone for month, so I already have 6-10
milestones on list. Sometimes old milestones have fixes so I can't simply delete
old queries. The idea was to put everything in folder with project name, and
then list will be much shorter. Later maybe create another folder like archive
and put there old stuff.
People who manage projects asked me if it's possible to divide query into
folders by role (like programmers, webmasters and copyrighters). This is
different way that could be possible with hierarchy.
PS. on mentioned wiki site there is typo in one of the headings: "desgin"

I will try, I never liked that option, because this divide also explorer files
and I sometimes need to work on few things at same time. But this can be good
clue so let's try.
BTW: three simple questions:
+ is there anywhere in xml information about milestone of task? I know I can
make custom query with this option, but I'm interested in storing such thing.
I'm writing my own software to generate timesheet and this information is very
important. Right now I can only extract that from query and I'm loosing
information about current milestone (if it's changed than I will have only latest)
+ do you plan to extend somehow query functionalities so I can also activate
query? Sometimes I need to create ticket for very small things. I want to have
stored this information (for timesheet) but don't need to have ticket.
Thanks for Your time :)
